BOZEMAN - The Bozeman City Commission has voted to add "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the categories of employees protected under the city's anti-discrimination policy.

The commission voted 3-0 Monday night to move forward with plans to protect homosexual and transgendered city employees from discrimination and to provide same-sex partners with the same benefits as opposite-sex couples. Commissioners Sean Becker and Eric Bryson did not attend the meeting.

Commissioners also supported spelling out same-sex partners' equal right to health care insurance and other benefits in the city's employee handbook.

Mayor Jeff Krauss says the city already follows that practice, but the commission decided to put it in writing.
